Jess: My Life

rule

I'm trying to portray here the actual person, but am not sure how to make it flow and remain interesting to someone who doesn't know me.

I've written a lot: letters, articles, essays, journalism, professional things, etc. However, I've found that this project entails considerable new writing. That takes a lot of time and energy. To my surprise, some of it has proved fairly difficult emotionally.

This is (and probably always will be) a work in progress, changing often, so please come back now and then to see what has transpired. It's a long narrative, with many intertwinings, which I see as the big challenge.

Topics include:

Different looks I've had a lot of different looks in my long life, many of them captured on film. Nevermind the blatant vanity.
Vital statistics There are also some vital statistics and miscellaneous personal factoids.
Home and hearth There's some sort of story associated with every place I've lived.
Biological family My biological family is not a big group, but it has several wonderfully interesting characters in it.
Extended family As happens with most people, I suppose, I've also shared in extended families.
Getting educated From 1940 to 1968; it spanned a whole generation and witnessed many changes in this world.
Earning my keep I retired in July of 1997, after working 52 years, 41 of them at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Hobbies Various hobbies and other activities over the years have given me both simple and complex pleasures.
Life with music I earned my daily bread from computing, but I live for music, that fascinating alternate universe.
Motorcycling I got to it only late in life, but in my mind I've been riding for half a century.
Working out Getting and remaining fit is not only healthy, but trememdous fun.
Miscellany There is a grab-bag of things I find interesting, sometimes amazing or merely odd.
Loving men Experiences and reflections on a lifetime of loving men: it has been a remarkable and rewarding odyssey.
